Just an FYI. 
The READY TRACE features ( some updates in the reportwriter branch) can also be useful for debugging COBOL applications.
Or the old fashion way of inserting DISPLAY statements until your find the bug and then remove them later.

As there is no full-time developer for GnuCOBOL yet (no one offered this
until now, there was a project specific option but we missed it out, 2.0
not available as a release on this time was at least one of the reasons).
If all stays as it is now 3.0 may need until April 2018...

If SPLIT KEYs are a must (which I can understand - it is possible to do
this in COBOL with additional computed fields and my employer did this
when we converted our applications to OpenCOBOL 0.something so I could
be of help) then use reportwriter branch and consider moving to the
development branch once SPLIT KEYs and SPARSE KEYs are merged. As soon
as this happens these features get in the debugger branch (or, if
someone helps with fixing the issues of the debugger branch in the
meantime it will be available in development branch, too).

The main focus for now is the 2.2 release candidate, it should be out
since end of April 2017...
